Abstract:

The present study was made to investigate the aminoacid composition of six freshwater algae namely, Chlamydomonas pertusa, Chlorella vulgaris, Spirulina maxima, Spirogyra porticalis, Euglena sanguinea and Anabena affinis collected from lake situated in Echoor village, near Sriperumudur, Kancheepuram district, Tamilnadu, India. The aminoacids present in the algal samples were extracted and estimated using automated aminoacid analyser. The results have shown the presence of the following aminoacids in Leu, Lys, Ile, Phe, Val, His, Arg, Met, Trp, Thr minute amounts in the screened algal species. Among the tested species Spirulina maxima is found to have an appreciable amounts of all these amino acids when compared to the rest of the algal species.
